I had a quick query regarding the setup of a reaction. The procedure that I am working from states that I need to put my reaction mixture under reflux for 3 hours. The solvents used are diethyl ether (30 mL) and THF (10 mL). How do you determine the temperature needed? Do I go via the boiling point of diethyl ether or THF?
If more details are needed regarding the reaction I am carrying out then please let me know. But my query leans more towards the determination of mixed solvent systems in general and how one would determine the reflux temperature needed.
